Mission Statement


Trusted Mentors aims to prevent homelessness by providing trained, volunteer mentors to individuals that have been recently housed and referred by a homeless prevention agency. These person-to-person mentoring relationships empower, educate, and provide life skills, hope, and on-going support in order to help people remain housed and improve the quality of their lives.

Description


Started in 2003 to support the Indianapolis Blueprint to End Homelessness, Trusted Partners was a program at Immanuel UCC. It supported over 100 families and individuals in their efforts to remain housed and move forward with their lives, with a success rate of 70% remaining housed while in the program. Because of our growth, we have grown so large that we have become an independent agency, now named Trusted Mentors Inc. Our name changed, but not our mission! Today, Trusted Mentors serves a large, diverse population, including ex-offenders and young adults aging out of foster care. Thanks to volunteers who give of their time and wisdom to help someone else, 80% of individuals in our program remain housed.
